How did you first get involved with Campus Outreach?
I got involved in Campus Outreach within the first few months of my Freshman year at Lynchburg College now known as the University of Lynchburg. A girl named Shar, who worked on staff with CO, knocked on my door and was intentional about getting to know me. She later invited me to the CO weekly meeting. We started meeting to read the Bible together, and I began to grow in my understanding and knowledge of God and his word. Going into college, I had no intention of being involved in a college ministry, but by God's sovereign grace, my life was drastically transformed.
What is one book that you would recommend that everyone should read and why?
Other than the Bible, I strongly recommend everyone should read To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee at least once in their lifetime! It's a book I read in High school and one I haven't gotten tired of reading over the years. To Kill a Mockingbird has something monumental to say about society, race, and justice, as well as about the painful process of growing up. It is an amazing novel that everyone should read! One of my favorite quotes from the book is "Your never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view. Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it."
